Does the LORD delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices as much as in obeying the voice of the LORD? To obey is better than sacrifice, and to heed is better than the fat of rams.Animal sacrifice lies outside our present experience, of course. Yet clearly we must be willing to apply this to the "stuff" (preaching, programs, songs, buildings, clothes, etc.) of our worship.
What if our worship works great for us, but God hates it, because when he scratches down below the surface, he recognizes it's all about us?
